Watercolor Letter Painted Eggs

  1. Firmly attach letter stickers to the eggs so that they spell out an Easter message.

Hand Painted Eggs with Overlapping Designs

  1. Use a craft punch that gives your desired shape on a vinyl sheet to make a stencil. I prefer the circular shapes.
  2. Apply the DIY stencil to the egg. You may need to rub the inside edge for ensuring a good seal.
  3. Dab undiluted food coloring inside the stencil with a cotton swab.
  4. Let it dry completely before removing the stencil.
  5. Repeat with a different food color while pressing the stencil down to overlap the previous shapes.

I wanted a dark background for some of my designer eggs. So I covered the circles up with round stickers, dipped the eggs in inky-black dye before removing the stickers.
